The Delgado Rivas Family

Country - Ecuador

Members of the Family
 - This family consists of Mercedes and her daughter Alexandra

Dates of Birth - Mercedes 1-1-1940, Alexandra 2-26-1959

Occupation and Salary -  Both mother and daughter had been accustomed to selling things on the street (sweets and candles), but since the COVID-19 pandemic, they have not been able to make a living this way. Mercedes is supposed to receive money from the government to support herself, but one of her sons takes it from her and uses it for himself. 

Our Story -  They live together in a small brick house that they own. Alexandra looks ater her mother, who has been bedridden for four years. She was injured during the earthquake in 2016 and had lost her ability to move and speak. She has since regained it partially. Alexandra is the only child who will look after her now because the others are ashamed of her. 

Alexandra is also suffering from injuries since she was run over by a car while she was selling items on the street. She has been trying to look after herself and her mother, but without a steady source of income, it is very difficult. 

What Your Sponsorship Provides

When you sponsor a family in Ecuador, your donation supports a monthly gift of food and basic hygiene and cleaning products for the family.  These families are very impoverished and what little income they have is not enough to buy the basic necessities.  Families will also receive monthly visits from volunteers and the Servant Sisters of the Home of the Mother who not only look after their physical needs but also their spiritual needs.  Any additional funds given beyond the minimum $37 per month will provide other necessities as needed, such as home repairs or basic home utensils.  Additional donations can be made here.

What You'll Receive

As a sponsor, you will receive a newsletter with general updates from our communities in India and Ecuador as well as a letter from your adopted child 3 times per year:  Easter, early fall and Christmas.  We also encourage you to send letters or cards to your adopted child by creating and logging into your account on our website.
